Gym Teacher Faked Bomb Threat To Get Out Of Work, Denver DA Says

gym teacher bomb threatAn elementary school gym teacher in Denver has been charged with a felony after she made a phony bomb threat, law enforcement officials say.

Jennifer Gomes, 42, a teacher at the Escuela de Guadalupe school in northwest Denver, is charged with one count of false reporting of explosives, according to the Denver District Attorney's Office.

Gomes is said to have left the note, which said, "there is a bomb inside," at the main entrance of the Catholic school on Oct. 17, KUSA-TV reported Thursday. She has been suspended from the school, where she began teaching last spring.

Gomes, who was arrested two days later, reportedly admitted to police that she left the note, telling authorities that she didn't want to go to work that day. She has been released on $2,000 bond.

The school, which isn't affiliated with the Archdiocese of Denver, is situated in a largely Hispanic neighborhood. Its mission is to teach students to be proficient in both Spanish and English, Reuters reported.

The school's president, David Card, said in a statement that he was "unable to comment on personnel matters."

Gomes is to be formally advised of the felony charge facing her in Denver County Court next month, the Denver DA's office said.

It worked and hopefully she'll never have to go to work as a teacher again. What a pitiful example for our young people.
